Science Content Review

Read over the directions on the attachment ‘Science Content Review.’ Pick one option to demonstrate your understanding of one science topic you learned about during the second semester and found particularly interesting. Look back at the assignments in PowerSchool for the second semester if you need to refresh your brain on what we have learned about.

This is your time to shine so be creative and have fun!

If you are in Mrs. G’s reading class, the work you complete for science and reading this week will be a joint effort. Mrs. G has more detailed information on her section of the CLP for those in her class. Since this project will be taken as a grade for two classes, you have twice the amount of time as the rest of your peers so Mrs. G and I expect superb work from you!

If the time lapse function is interesting to you, here is a link that shows you how to use that function: How to use the time lapse on Google Earth

If you are struggling with the initial brainstorm, here are some examples of human impacts: water usage (such as the withdrawal of water from streams and aquifers or the construction of dams and levees), land usage (such as urban development, agriculture, or the removal of wetlands), and pollution (such as of the air, water, or land).
